the republicans from caving to barack obama on every issue, i am not paid enough. >> it is almost unparitiy, talking to the press and saying it is conservative press is doing it on. >> in an interview with "the new republic," rather than be focused on the employment situation or the debt, the big problems that obama has are fox news and me. obama said to "the new republic," he would get a lot more done without fox news and rush limbaugh. the rest of the media's in the tank. everybody else has fallen in line. there is no opposition. other than fox news and limbaugh. one of the reasons that fox news and i stand out like sore thumbs here is because the rest of the media is gone, they're in the tank, they have long ago ceased doing their job. they are not reporting, they are not curious, they are not holding obama accountable. they are on board. they are part of the agenda advancement team. >> why is the president singling out and blaming fox for a lack of bipartisanship in washington? chief political respondent byron york joins us. is fox guilty? or he doesn't like how fox challenges his polic

. president obama and chris matthews will say this is a false issue. in white house fact sheet, the first bullet point that the white house makes and the first one that president obama says continuing to strengthen the border security. if i could make a final point, i think that republicans and also democrats should stop thinking about this in terms of politics. good policy is good politics. i don't think republicans should worry about who will vote for them in years coming because of something they do today. they should do the right thing for the economy and the national security. it's better than doing nothing. >> shouldn't it be coupled with entitle reform? >> bob: a couple of things here i'd say. the vast, vast majority of people work and you can see them in city. they are working. they are not near to go on the dole. obama and the senate called for them not to get the welfare grant. the other thing as dana pointed out, she did not point this out, i'll point it out. the border got more and more secure every year. it is good policy. we have to deal with this. if we turn to politics rig

or no trust in senator schumer, senator durbin and president obama. i don't think they want to solve the issue, i think they want to politicize it. so my advice to republican lawmakers, proceed with caution. joining me now with reaction to today's announcement. senator marco rubio, senator, good visor bad advice? >> good advice. and thanks for having me on to talk about this important topic. i think it's a good moment to remind people and the country that the vast majority of favorites favor legal immigration and we don't have a legal immigration system that works right now and our problem with illegal immigration is that it undermines legal immigration. so we have 11 million people that are undocumented and we understand that we have to deal with this issue because we have 11 million people that by all accounts are going to be here the rest of their lives with or without documents, but our objection has been in the past that we can't do anything to deal with 11 million people that, number one, is unfair to people who have done i the right way, or number two, that will encourage illegal immigr

with democrats and signature domestic policy issues and then 9/11 happened and the wars occurred. really, the nation polarized again, right versus left. i don't think we have come out of that. obama inherited that. but he talked about bridging that and governing in a way to bring right and left together. i happening the number-1 failure of president obama is not the economy. it's his failure to find a way to bring us all together. >> eric: chris, what about that? >> well, i think it's easy to put it on president obammasm the fact is, this has been building and arguably building for years. the division that we have between the parties. the issues are difficult. the solutions are more complex. it is not easy to find that compromise. it is easy to say that it's president obama's fault. i heard that from the previous president. but the reality is, you cannot dance with someone if they keep saying no. when you have a republican party that is divided amongst itself, in terms of where the country should go, how do you find that common ground that basically unites the country? it's extremely dif
, by supporting as actively as did you barack obama, you also put yourself in a category of intolerance on issues like entitlement culture. when you yourself were born in the south bronx and you made it on your own. the entitlement culture now extends to 50% of the american homes. all right? huge rise in it. so you're putting yourself in that bracket by supporting the democratic party through barack obama. who their values are different than yours, general. >> yes, i was raised in the south bronx. i can assure it was social security that kept my parents in respectable comfort after they had retired and they paid into that. >> bill: that's not means tested. that's not what i'm talking about. >> i would have means testing in a heart beat. in fact, i should be means tested. i think there are a lot of things we could do with entitlement reform. i think there are lots of areas in our government where we can take a hard look entitlement reform, other areas and there are ways to cut budget. but. >> bill: but the president isn't doing that is he a spender. >> remember one thing, it's the congress that pa
made the appointments and president obama wants them to stick, but a bigger issue, they made hundreds, more than 300 decisions with these members on this panel, and the court, the district court or the appellate court ruled that they're not only wrong and illegal, null and void, that it actually is a breach of our constitution, so, who's impacted by the decisions that are no longer in play? >> it's unclear what will happen to the decisions particularly if there's appeal to the supreme court. the vacating of those decisions could itself be stayed. but, look, this is an extraordinary decision by the d.c. circuit. it overturns over 100 years of precedent. every single president, republican and democrat, during the last hundred years, 150 years, has made these kind of recess appointments, and what the court said yesterday was na the president's constitutional power is limited to extremely narrow window between when congress goes out of session at the end of each year or when you're between congresses, what was going on here was that the house was refusing to go out of session solely for t

it to that, they have leverage. >> bret: a.b.? >> tucker right, we don't for sure is president obama wants a bill which ultimately will be a compromisement but he is not running for re-election and the fact that congressional democrats who have been active on this issue for years, members of the congressial hispanic congress asked him not to come out in an aggressive way and try to best the senate bipartisan group with his own bill. that's why he said today if they don't do it i will have one but he talked about his principles. that is a sipe he wants a legacy and he wants a bill. now, republicans at the same time because there is such a lack of trust are trying to win the hearts and minds of their own conservative base, by saying this isn't amnesty. we are not going to give the president a win and we don't trust him either. but they want a bill as well. i'll assume both sides want a bill because they need a bill. we can be cynical about it later. but it is in president obama's interest for a legacy and the republican party interest for winning a coalition that gives them the white house a
and i agree that the senator and president obama are distracting from a serious debate about the issues have the country. i refuse to sit quiet and not get upset when i am called all these names. >> i used to get offended by this stuff all the time. if i let myself offended what democrats say about me as a conservative. i would rather be the cheerful person, i can think we can fix it. just ignore them. it sounds so ridiculous to complain about fox news. >> sean: i'm not worried about the criticism of fox news. that is evidence we get under their skin. >> yes. >> sean: what i am furious about it is beneath the dig analytical of the office of the president and senate. >> the senator said that on the floor of the united states senate. that is not right. >> i think that is more persuasive, wait, i'm not for old people eating cat food. it's better to say, old people to have more money in their pocket so they can make their own decisions. >> i have to tell you something. the reason why they keep believing it is because people believe the lie. >> here is the other reason. mary is popular senat
and not just a path to legal status for the 11 million plus illegal immigrants in this country. obama wants am inmates at this. it seems that marco rubio had a similar reaction to the so-called plan. he issued the following statement. he said i'm concerned by the president's unwillingness to accept significant enforcement triggers before current undocumented immigrants can apply to a green card. without such in place, enforcement systems will never be implemented and will be back in just a few years dealing with mill yows of new undocumented people in the country. finally the speech left the impression he believes reforming immigration quick sli more important than reforming immigration rights. if we want to talk about immigration reform, we first need to secure the border or one day god forbid, a terrorist is going cross that border and wreak havoc on american soil. we need to stop the drugs and human trafficking all taking place along that border. i've seen this all firsthand. i have covered the border extensively. i have been out with agents, in their boats, all terrain vehicles, out on hor
but funny the editor of the new republic, chris hughes, dot-com millionaire. donor that used for obama and says in the letter to readers in same issue with the interview, he says how they will have no partisan bias. they are not going to push a party line, not going to be biased toward a group or party. yet, this thing was basically dictation from the president of the united states. >> bret: mara? >> i think that, you know, chris hughes has to prove that. right out of the gate he did an interview with the president and he is a big donor and employee. it seemed weird. full of conflict. the steve croft interview was interesting when you hear him asking the question, why did you want to do this? almost like a bubble over his head why did i agree to do this? it was kind of tough piece exit interview pat on the head for hillary. he played along from what we can tell. >> bret: exit interviews are one thing. at the end of two terms, looking back over two terms. one of those things. and you ask questions, reflective. the president tarting a second term in the middle of controversy. the secreta
and this is what you're going to get and you know, it's hard to feel sorry for the american people on this issue when you put them back into the presidency barack obama, who ignored, ignored his own deficit panel on recommendations. on the other thing, as a tactical matter, the republicans punting, i think it's a smart thing. you know, i think if they're going to really go to battle on this thing, they've got to get their acts together and have a game plan. because i'm telling you-- >> get their ax-- >> and if we default, this country is going to go through some major, major issues, and government's going to stop working and that's going to affect a lot of people. and we have not been through, when two-thirds of the federal government has shut down. >> adam, adam, this is it, charlie put it it in a nutshell, the scare tactic, that we're obligated to this mountain of debt until it falls on top of us, if that's the only route we have. >> we are, but let me try put this in perspective. i absolutely agree with you, charles, politicians should be prepared to lose their jobs on major issues. there com
gigot. that was president obama in his inaugural address monday, promising to make global warming a top priority in a second term, it's an issue that is sure to bring some fierce policy showdowns, the first of which may come under the keystone xl pipeline since 2008. and a revised route through nebraska this week, the final hurdle to the project at the state level and 53 senators, including 9 democrats sent a letter to the white house on wednesday urging president obama to expedite its approval. and joining the panel this week, wall street journal assistant page editor, james freeman and senior economics writer steve moore and washington columnist kim strassel. kim, where did that come from? i don't remember the climate change being something that the president talked a lot about in the campaign if at all. >> surprise. >> paul: and he didn't wait for the state of the union, it's in the inaugural address. so, what's going on here politically? >> well, i think some of us did think it was coming. remember, this was a high priority of his back in 2008 when he campaigned. but they got beat u
not muster with my next guest. $50 billion. what issues do you have? >> not the issue i have but the issue that it wipes out all of the new revenue of president obama's pass tax increase. the tax deal that was just done on the fiscal cliff was supposed to solve or help with revenue but in the first year sandy wipes out the savings in in 2013 and undercovers how difficult it is to work on the debt it defines tax-and-spend. >> both agree this is money well spent negotiation? >> sure, but the issue is, do you add it to the deficit in door you go ahead and find offsets? there are a lot of things that folks have problems with. one is that the a lot of the spending did not happen until 2013 and in the future. there was an argument that okay, we will take care of the emergency needs in the next year and a half and declare those an emergency and allow that to go under the deficit but money spent after 2014, make that compete in the regular budget process with all the other money so that way you find offsets or lesser programs if we have to spend. so the question is not, do you spend the up. the qu

highlighting about how far obama is willing to stretch the constitution and his presidential powers we saw this in lib yachl the president did not get congressional approval to launch air assaults we saw this when he decided to issue an executive order stopping deportation of thousands of illegal immigrants and when the justice department refused to up hold the defense of marriage act. and we saw when it administration weakened welfare requirements and pushed through his controversial contraception mandate. i don't think recent example is going to be the last. joining me now is louie glomer and tennessee congress woman. great to see you. >> great to see you, sean. >> he keeps pushing this to a breaking point. >> i think you're right what. we can't continue to see in congress is that he circumvents us. i think american people are tired of the president not respecting the constitution and to go around congress and trying to do executive orders all things we should be doing. >> isn't this supposed to be co-equal branches of government? separation of powers? >> it's basic stuff, part f the con

? >> oh, i believe it does, because it gets to, i think, a bigger issue, brenda, finally, maybe, a little tamp down on government overreach, you know, in obama's inauguration speech, it was all about growing government even bigger than it already is. and the problem is, when government grows, the private sector suffers. and if you say, well, who cares where the money goes, the problem is government growth is always less inefficient than private sector growth and this is one step toward hopefully allowing the private sector to grow, tamping down on unions which i think have hurt many, many, many industries, despite the higher wages. in the union you have higher wages until you lose your job, and i think this is a step forward, this is progress, what needs to be done. >> brenda: you know, jonas, toby brought up a good point. which is that union membership has been declining for decades, record lows right now. so, what difference does all of this make? the unions don't have as much power. does this make all that much difference to jobs? >> i'll go off what the guest just said. if this were t

since richard nixon. barack obama doesn't dell gate. he dominates. and i think both chuck hagel and john kerry may well have to get used to the fact on the big issues, and it should be the president ultimately who makes the big decisions but consequential and effective secretaries of defense and secretaries of state help shape the policy. and that really remains to be seen. in an obama second term. jenna: let's go bigger if we can for a moment. because the questions about the president's relationship with israel, again are one ally in this region, have been a constant questioning over the last four years. now we're going to be in a new term. regardless what happens with senator hagel and whether or not he heads up the pentagon which is expected, what do you i think the damage is of those questioning of our administration and our loyalty to our ally? >> well, i think the reality is if barack obama, and again, this a two-way street. benjamin netanyahu is not an easy guy to get along with. protects the interest of his country. sometimes those diverge with ours. but if barack obama wants to

not figure out what they believe in and how to fight obama. >> are they on the wrong side of social issues? >> shear what they should do. they could be on some of it but it is not the social issues but the big questions. the country is going broke. and want not be big government but they cannot frame it in a way that says we don't care. >> what about speaker boehner and mcconnell and the leadership. >> there is no pro growth agenda to create jobs. there is nothing aspirational. you are right on social issues. there is no tolerance. bottom line, there is nothing for a voter to --. >> here is speaker boehner, react to what he said about the president. take a listen to this. >> so, we over the next 22 months, we will be the focus of this administration, as they attempt to annihilate the republican party. let me just say, i do believe that is their goal, to shove us into the dust bin of history. >>gregg: is he right? >> of course, but what president doesn't try to annihilate the opposition especially if they help him do it. in this case the republicans have each time they have negotiated with
story right now. a federal appeals court ruling that president obama violated the constitution when he side-stepped the senate and filled over positions on the national labor relations board. the ruling that raises questions about hundreds, hundreds of decisions issued by that board, most of which have been very pro labor for more than a year now. do those stand? are they void? are they thrown out? who is on the nlrb right now? can it even adjudicate anything? lots of questions and we'll get answers. jay sekulow, the center for law and justice and one of the attorneys, one of the victors in this case, filed a friend of the court brief on the case arguing the administration had violated the constitution. and julian epstein, house judiciary committee and former staff director of the house government reform committee. gentlemen, welcome back, wow, so this was a unanimous decision. i guess, congratulations to you, jay, are in order since you had a hand in this. i think a lot of our viewers know, nlrb adjudicate disputes between company and labor, explain the significance of this ruling. >>

or defense party. you're part of the obama team. this is a good opportunity for the american people to get a solid airing on the issues that you know, face us. nuclear iran. our troops in afghanistan. you mentioned the defense budget, missile defense. proliferation. all these issues. so i'm hoping that chuck hagel will be pressed by members of the senate on the senate armed services committee about these very important issues that affect us today. jon: presumably he has been asked those opinions on those issues by the president. the president wouldn't have picked him for the job if he didn't share the president's views? >> no argument there because that is why this is really important because there is lot to be concerned about the president's foreign policy. look at syria, 22 months, 62,000 deaths. we have had no effect on iran's movement towards a nuclear weapon. what about the rise of china? are we going to have the forces we need to make that pivot to china? i said in that pies in the "new york post" yesterday, are we getting a powerful pivot or a plucky pirro wet? we need forces out th

for the lead on immigration reform right now, president obama laid down his marker on this issue in las vegas yesterday. take a look. >> we all agree that these men and women should have to earn their way to citizenship. but for comprehensive immigration reform to work, it must be clear from the outset that there is a pathway to citizenship. [applause] martha: you heard the big applause there but the blueprint released by these eight senators would not let illegal i am hi grants immigrants seek citizenship until border security is increased in a comprehensive way. arizona senator jeff flake is in the group and he joins me now. good morning. >> thank for having me on. martha: what is your reaction saying not needing to have border security completely shored up before you have a path to citizenship? >> no you have to have a pathway it citizenship is important to the president, the border protection especially important to us in arizona. we've got to have it. martha: marco rubio agrees with you. he doesn't want to get into a bidding war on this. this group of bipartisan senators agreed on this p

"new york times" finally a week ago had an article about this. we hope the mainstream media starts to focus on. >> they are not going to. >> if the american people start to demand this and the more time you do shows like this and bring it to light people will get angry. i don't think the dna in the country changed when governor romney talked about the 47%. the problem we have to start looking at is the corporations and big government in partnership to drive the programs. one of the things we are trying to show in the special s the fact there is a business model in washington, d.c. that has an industrial logic to grow government. it is not that i don't think people want these entitlements.

and gentlemened co conspirators begins today. a key issue in the trial is whether u.s. agents tortured the men to get their confession. the mraurs pl lawyers plan to af they were taken to is evidence. >>> new lawsuits challenging president obama's mandate requiring employers to provide birth control coverage are filed every week but lower court judges cannot agree on a decision. some cases are thrown out others get approval. religiously affiliated institutions and private employers are suing the government saying their mandate violates police. >> more will be on the food stamp program than originally thought. they revised the participant reports at the end of the year. new numbers show a sharper rise in july of 2012. originally 11,000 new people joined the program from june to july. that in the soar is oufrnver 100,000. they will indict the parents of jonbenet ramsey following her murder. prosecutors refuse to try the case. it comes 13 years after the district attorney says they lacked evidence to charge any one with the 6-year-old's mysterious death. they were not exonerated until 2008 two ye
as pattern. it fit as pattern with not only the obama administration and mrs. clinton. she started her tenure going to china refusing to raise human rights issues but saying issues like climate change were too important so she couldn't raise human rights. this is norm with iran. refusing to raise any issue seriously with the government beyond the nuclear weapons program. martha: i wao point out the video people are seeing to the right of you is ev prison which is a notorious prison. the conditions we heard from the pastor's wife, up until now they were able to speak to him on the phone. his children were able to speak with him on the phone. his family in iran was able to visit with him once in a while. he is in a much more isolated part of the prison and that communication will be cut off completely. how would you as a senior state department advisor how would you advise the administration to try to deal with this subject? >> well the more publicity can be brought to this, the more pressure can be applied, the better. frankly dealing with dissidents, i would call this man a dissident now, aro
